                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of DWES EG.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to 
give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  Perhaps it is 
THIRSTY THUGS 714 members' intannibility that enabled them to move from 20th to 9th 
last week...  (Less time in the sun...) Like a chunk of francium heaved into a wet 
pond, THIRSTY THUGS 722 blew up the rankings to 12!  Managers were muttering after 
THIRSTY THUGS 723 showed DWES EG what they could do:  1-0-0 to move up by 12.  
Perhaps it is THIRSTY THUGS 602 members' intannibility that enabled them to move from 
24th to 12th last week...  (Less time in the sun...) Like a chunk of francium heaved 
into a wet pond, BIG TEN 6 blew up the rankings to 13!  Managers were muttering after 
THIRSTY TUGS 0419 showed DWES EG what they could do:  1-0-0 to move up by 15.  
Perhaps it is L IS FOR... 2 members' intannibility that enabled them to move from 
30th to 15th last week...  (Less time in the sun...) Managers were muttering after 
LAZY DM showed DWES EG what they could do:  1-0-0 to move up by 17.  Like a chunk of 
francium heaved into a wet pond, GIMMICK blew up the rankings to 18!  Managers were 
muttering after FIRES OF HEAVEN 3 showed DWES EG what they could do:  1-0-0 to move 
up by 18.  Perhaps it is NAMINGWARRIORSSUCKS members' intannibility that enabled them 
to move from 39th to 20th last week...  (Less time in the sun...) Like a chunk of 
francium heaved into a wet pond, I AM SUCK blew up the rankings to 22!  Managers were 
muttering after DISCORD showed DWES EG what they could do:  1-0-0 to move up by 23.  
Perhaps it is TRV-310 members' intannibility that enabled them to move from 46th to 
23rd last week...  (Less time in the sun...) Rumor has it an incurable disease has 
swept the stable of ELVES OF KRYNN.  Note their drop in the rankings from 3rd to 
24th.  Watch out!!!  Like a chunk of francium heaved into a wet pond, DRAGON JUNKIES 
blew up the rankings to 24!  Thinking about sending their team manager to the Dark 
Arena is PROJECT HAYSEED, after suffering a 22 drop in ranking.  Managers were 
muttering after BLOODHAMMER CLAN showed DWES EG what they could do:  1-1-0 to move up 
by 23.  The boys at GWAR aren't the happy-go-lucky bunch we all know and love, after 
suffering a 19 drop last week.  Rumor has it an incurable disease has swept the 
stable of ROMAN DIVINITY.  Note their drop in the rankings from 2nd to 29th.  Watch 
out!!!  Perhaps it is ECCENTRIC members' intannibility that enabled them to move from 
57th to 44th last week...  (Less time in the sun...) Thinking about sending their 
team manager to the Dark Arena is ENNUI, after suffering a 29 drop in ranking.  The 
boys at THE BEAST aren't the happy-go-lucky bunch we all know and love, after 
suffering a 28 drop last week.  Like a chunk of francium heaved into a wet pond, 
THIRSTY THUGS 713 blew up the rankings to 14!  Rumor has it an incurable disease has 
swept the stable of THIRSTY THUGS 603.  Note their drop in the rankings from 25th to 
48th.  Watch out!!!  Managers were muttering after SAPHIRE DREAM showed DWES EG what 
they could do:  1-0-0 to move up by 15.  The boys at M IS FOR... 2 aren't the 
happy-go-lucky bunch we all know and love, after suffering a 19 drop last week.  
Thinking about sending their team manager to the Dark Arena is THIRSTY THUGS 0409, 
after suffering a 19 drop in ranking.  Perhaps it is THIRSTY THUGS 0410 members' 
intannibility that enabled them to move from 68th to 52nd last week...  (Less time in 
the sun...) Like a chunk of francium heaved into a wet pond, TOURNEY ORC 8 blew up 
the rankings to 17!  Managers were muttering after WAY TOO MUCH BEER 4 showed DWES EG 
what they could do:  1-0-0 to move up by 17.  Perhaps it is MILITARY SCIENCE members' 
intannibility that enabled them to move from 75th to 55th last week...  (Less time in 
the sun...) The boys at DECEIVERZ aren't the happy-go-lucky bunch we all know and 
love, after suffering a 12 drop last week.  Rumor has it an incurable disease has 
swept the stable of HARVEST DAY.  Note their drop in the rankings from 10th to 61st.  
Watch out!!!  BIG TEN 3 had cause to celebrate, after FIGHTING ILLINI got 26 points 
by beating HAYSEED X-V.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, PRAY was winsome, 
after beating QUALINESTI and seeing him lose 12 points.  Those who hoped for a new 
Duelmaster were disappointed by SADDAM A GO-GO, of GWAR, who despite a 13-15-0 
couldn't overcome DWES EG's Number 1.  So who was the warrior seen charging into 
immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     So much to report, so little time!  Like a horde of jackals fleeing from the 
lion, so did the "warriors" in DWES EG avoid RESTRICTIONS.  As a woman of good 
breeding scorns the "warriors" of SAPHIRE DREAM, so did that sorry team shy from 
RESTRICTIONS Is it charming personality?  Conversational abilities?  Good oral 
hygiene?  Whatever it is, DOUBLE DUTCH is the most challenged warrior.   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Ask not a spymaster 
for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen into an unconscious 
stupor.   
     All good things must come to an end.  As the seasons change, and the creatures 
of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave this place.  DWES EG, I 
leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The Dripping Blade.

                        BLOODGAMES at the SUMMER FACE-TO-FACE

Back by popular demand, we will be having Bloodgames at the Summer FTF!  For those of 
you who always wanted the chance to manage the last warrior standing alive upon the 
arena sands, your day has come.  At the end of the ten turns, even though several 
warriors, bruised and scarred, MAY yet live, only one will be crowned Champion of the 
Bloodgames.  And in this game mere survival counts for little.  A great general once 
said, "The object of battle is not to die for your cause, but to make your enemy die 
for his."  This general would have greatly enjoyed the Duelmasters Bloodgames.  There 
will be two different arenas:

  FTF-Style (DM 98):      for Face-to-Face attendees, with turn-by-turn strategies
  Mail-in-Style (DM 99):  for all managers, with one strategy for all ten rounds

Gameplay proceeds according to standard DM rules, except for a few notable exceptions: 

BLOODGAMES ROLLUP --  Your Bloodgames team is ten warriors, one of each fighting 
style, each warrior designed from scratch!  (All are 84 points, 3-21, as usual.)

DEATH -- As the name implies, the Bloodgames will leave the arena sands somewhat 
darker before they're over.  It's a dangerous sport intended only for the tough and 
spirited.  The Arenamaster will be less likely to intercede on behalf of a dying 
warrior.  Even at a 1 kill desire, kill attempts will occur.

REPLACEMENTS AND ROLLUPS -- There will be no replacement characters.  

CHALLENGES AND STRATEGIES -- In the FTF-style bloodgames, there are no regular 
challenges, only bloodfeuds.  For the Mail-in arena, warriors may not change their 
strategy from round to round (to make it fair for those who could not attend the 
FTF).  There will be no DA challenges in either arena.

TURN PROCESSING AND DUE DATES -- If you are not attending the FTF, we must have your 
rollups and strategies by the Wednesday before the FTF, else they are due by 9pm on 
Friday, at the hotel.  The Bloodgames will process at the FTF with the regular 
tournament.  

MISSED TURNS -- All warriors fight each round.  Only the dead may rest.

ERRORS -- If we make an input error, that warrior will be awarded a win and kill.  
Errors must be reported before the next turn processes.  

NEWSLETTER -- Warriors are ranked according to their number of kills.  Champions of 
Bloodgames may write a column for the newsletter at the end of the games. 

FEES -- A Bloodgames rollup costs a $10 set-up fee.  Managers may roll up more than 
one team but may run only one team in each arena.  The fee for all ten rounds is $49. 

AWARDS -- The Bloodgames last ten rounds.  Only warriors who survive to the end of 
Turn 10 will be eligible for an award.  However, a consolation award of a Bloodgames 
T-shirt will be awarded to the dead warrior with the most kills.

The living warrior with the greatest number of kills will be the Bloodgames Champion.  
Bloodgames Victor titles, 2nd and 3rd place, and Bloodgames Runner-up titles, 4th 
through 6th place, will be awarded to those living warriors with the greatest number 
of kills at the end of Turn 10, with one other important consideration:  Each of these 
six warriors must be of a different fighting style.  Win/loss records and, if 
necessary, recognition points will only be used to determine awards if there is a tie.  

A Bloodgames T-shirts will be awarded to the manager of the team with the most kills.

The Bloodgames Champion fights for free in Advanced Duelmasters, and all Champions and 
Victors earn Tournament Victor status, which allows them to challenge once per turn 
with increased priority.  These awards last for six months.  The manager of the 
Bloodgames Champion, Victors, and Runners-up will receive Bloodgames T-shirts.

AFTERMATH -- Warriors from the Bloodgames may not transfer to any other arena.  Once 
the games are over, the arena and teams will be disbanded.  The fighters have won 
their freedom and will never more be seen in the gladiatorial games.  A special bonus 
will, however, be awarded to the 1st through 3rd place warriors.  Lady Sheila 
Greywand, of the Isle of the Eye, has consented to allow the top three gladiators in 
each Bloodgames admission to the Advanced Duelmasters games.  Any special training 
required to qualify those three warriors for Advanced Duelmasters combat will be 
conducted before transfer into ADM.  Astute managers will note that this means that 
three warriors that are designed from scratch will survive the Bloodgames, win one of 
the top three places, and go on to immortal glory!  One of those warriors could be 
yours!

         The challenge is yours to take.  The final plans are yours to make.  
          When the dust settles, remember:  To the victor goes the spoils!
